Subject: Hey Pocky Way
The Kimock portion of this show is absolutely spectacular. The Hey Pocky Way jam is one of my favorite sections of music ever. It is that good folks. Get you some. As blasphemous as it may sound I would consider this show if given the option for a single concert time travel. JGB 3-8-80 would be #1 but I would have to consider this if given a second shot.

Subject: KIMOCK AND JOHN
Wow what a great show disregard prior posts. Kimock fits alike a glove in this instant classic.

Subject: kimock w/ dso
love this show always come back. first set highlights are plenty,big river is so playful with kimock noodling so clear and vivid, and the music closer is probably the best post dead version ive yet heard. but its really all about the second set. shakedown>estimated>dark star>other one, kimock isnt as intimately familiar with the songs as john but it doesn't matter, he is that good he can listen and fill the gaps so well song selection is great for him and the band to get out there. get this one, great recording by cm as well (ive yet to hear a bad one)

Time to get rid of your fuzzy radio, Bub.

This is a great recording! Kimock's a nice compliment to these guys.

Subject: Check again Mr. Deadhead
Can't explain why your dl was so cruddy. I checked it out and it's really crispy!!

Try again. It appears as though Rob is pretty sticky about sound quality

Subject: DSO /w Kimock = 5 stars
Incredible...I've been listening to the Dead for years and only recently have discovered SKB. This may be blasphemy, but I'd venture to say that many listeners will prefer this to a lot of the live Dead that's out there. Kimock (and DSO) expand the Dead's sound and take these tunes to another level.

Subject: Smmmmmmmmmokin'!
Mr. Dedhead, what kind of crack have you been smokin'? This recording is crystal clear.

My kudos to the taper.

The show sounds sick too! DSO with Kimock is amazing.

Do yourself a favor and download this immediatly!

Subject: Sound Quality
I just tested it and it sounds amazing. Maybe you accidently downloaded the 24-bit version?? Try downloading the 16-bit version....cm

Subject: Terrible
Was this recording uploaded in order to piss people off? It sounds like absolute shit. It is just fried, it sounds like my fuzzy radio just before it is morphed into another station.
